Faking It

ImageIn news from South Africa, a deaf interpreter from Nelson Mandela’s tribute was accused of faking his gestures. Reuters tried to get in touch with the interpreter and he said that he was a “champion interpreter” and that he had a schizophrenic episode during the tribute, hence, the gibberish signs. 

“South Africa’s leading deaf association denounced Jantjie as a fake, saying he was inventing signs.”

Well, as they say, you can fool some people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all the time.
